    Datura only takes you about two hours to complete, which starts off by twenty minutes of yelling at the Move controller and fiddling with the unfortunate control scheme. It is then followed by a stroll through an absurd and amazing world, that will create an experience you won't soon forget. An experience, however, filled with non-challenging puzzles.

    Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a disappointing sequel to the entertaining Guardians of Light. The possibility to explore the old Egypt with four players is fun, but it is not more than that. We like the addition of loot, but it is simply not crucial enough. There could have been so much more adventure in this game.

    Technically speaking Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey is a sloppy product that is not episodic due to creative reasons, but because of the budget and the development team. Ragnar Tornquist is able to create worlds and characters in a brilliant, mature way. That brilliant writing is actually what saves this first chapter.

    Ultra Street Fighter IV does not offer any new content, but is more fluent. This new version feels like it is a must-buy, but it is not very exciting. The big plus is that you can finally play this game on your current-gen consoles, but other than that it does not bring a lot of new elements to the table.

    Pocket Planes is free, which makes it perfect to give it a try. Collecting money and bucks is slow if you don't spend real money, but in time you can expand your airline without taking out your wallet. Too bad, though, the game is incredibly passive; you do nothing but sending out flights and waiting for the money to roll in.

    The Testament of Sherlock Holmes tries to capture the dark side of the master detective, but thanks to the awkward animations we barely recognize Holmes. The clunky controls make discovering a crime scene a grueling experience, but the game does excel in the things it's supposed to excel in: many different puzzles and some great detective work.

    On the one side it's a fast-paced, pretty, turn-based Pokémon game filled with random dungeons that provide many hours of entertainment. On the other side though, is has a dull story, stacked with uninteresting conventions that can't be skipped. Because of this, Gates of Infinity is a less serious, and even somewhat childish successor to its predecessors.

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is to a certain degree pretty enjoyable but it simply never attempts to try anything special with the universe to which it is connected. It's absolutely not horrible and the true fans will definitely enjoy it but we hope the next game contains a bit more 'magic'.

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is not a revolution in movie based games, but it is not a bad effort. It is entertaining to go wild with the Transformers and we love the chaos. However, the game is repetitive and the story isn’t very long.

    Fifa 13 on the Wii U is a fine game of soccer with enough teams, competitions and modes to keep you busy for months. It is, however, an inferior version compared to Fifa 13 on other platforms. Important modes like Match Day and Ultimate Team are missing and the Manager Mode has been downgraded. The game has a stuttering framerate from time to time and the GamePad doesn't provide any unique features.

    PES 2010 forgets to innovate, which is especially disappointing considering that defending is as difficult as it was in previous years due to a lack of real control. However, the game has it’s moments of brilliance when you’re on the attack, which saves it from a sub-par grade.

    Unfortunately The Pre-Sequel does not have the rich characters we expect in a Borderlands-game. Going through this adventure with Claptrap is very enjoyable, because of his jokes, but technically it could use some freshening up.

    Everything in this game has been done before, and has been done better. Not having split screen co-op is unforgivable; Inversion seems to be made for playing it with another player next to you. A lot of variation makes the single player experience somewhat decent, but never rises above mediocrity.

    The short length of Wanted: Weapons of Fate is actually its rescue. If the game would have been any longer it would have gotten boring. For that reason Wanted is only recommendable for the most fanatic Wanted fans. Everyone else might give this average shooter a chance when it’s in the discount bin.

    LEGO Jurassic World is a disappointment. It is awesome to walk around with a big dinosaur while the original music plays, but the game itself feels rushed. The deadly accidents from the film are not creatively Lego-fied and the puzzles are getting less and less challenging.

    Dead Space 3 has moments in which it is just as exciting and tense as its predecessor and new additions, such as crafting your own weapons, are great. However, the boring human enemies, repetitive encounters with the necromorph, a weak story and the feeling that the game has been stretched, make sure that this trilogy ending doesn’t stack up to the first and second Dead Space.

    Lightning Returns tries to restore the honor of the Final Fantasy franchise as well as being an RPG with modern design sensibilities. Unfortunately, it succeeds in neither. Final Fantasy gameplay elements drown in a mishmash of poor game design and forced choices. This third XIII does have its own charm though. Touching music and the still present FF-magic make Lightning Returns an acceptable RPG.

    Puddle is a decent game with enough variation and challenge, but is too slow to ever really get exciting and uses too much trial and error. This makes the game more frustrating than fun.

    The never-ending repetition of gameplay is a killer for this fun stand-alone add-on. We miss vivid surroundings, awesome level-design and original assignments. Thankfully the powers you are given during your time in this game (like flying and kill demons in a fantastic way) make it still worth while.

    This action game with horror influences made us scream at night. The music and spooky enemies has driven us to a point that we had to switch on all the lights. Once we weren’t scared anymore we saw some things that made are eyebrows go up. The protagonist, Alex, can fight and uses a gun. This takes away a lot of fun that we had during the last Silent Hill. So it is safe to say that it’s a good game, but doesn’t have the ‘wow’ factor.

    Cargo Commander has a special and original setting and some truly creative moments. But the drag sets in way too early and the many bugs and glitches don't make the game anymore fun.

    Kirby's most characteristic skill has been taken away from him, which does not do this game any good. Plus, the beautiful art style and music are not really coming to live on Wii U GamePad. As most Kirby-games, this one is still entertaining and easy accessible, but it could have been much more.

    It’s fun for a few hours, in which chaotic gunfights, funny weapons and a couple creative moments manage to get your attention. However, the game is too shallow to keep your attention for long. Just like its big brother Serious Sam Double D XXL is corny, simple fun, but never anything more.

    After finishing Papa & Yo, we were left with mixed feelings. The game offers a unique emotional experience through the creative fantasy world of Quico, accompanied by great music. But the platforming and puzzling never really gets challenging and the game is filled with bugs and technical issues. This makes Papa & Yo an unique game, but not the game it amazing game it could have been.

    Accessible to all and existing of simplistic gameplay limited to bashing the A button. A lack of story, variety and ability to train your Pokémon, make sure the game never evolves beyond a mediocre, yet sometimes enjoyable, party game.

    Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection is a collection of almost fifty games. Most of them are well worth playing. The nostalgic feeling is great and a lot of bonus material can be unlocked. The only two downsides are that none of the games has an online multiplayer and that half of the games are already downloadable.
